I have 685 between the two scores on here. Got approved really quick but only a $500 limit. Oh well it's a start. I have a capital one with $6,500 and a delta rewards Amex with $1000 limit. This may be why it was so low but I also have 4 older derogatories. Trying to get my credit back in shape. Wish me luck.

Don't bother if you fail the "5/24" rule
by RideMadone
Helpful to 690 out of 787

Applied with a 715 Equifax and 705 TU score and was turned down so I called the recon line and they told me about the 5/24 rule (5 new accounts in 24 months - hard & fast rule). She said that's the only reason, if it wasn't for that I would have been approved.  I then applied for another USAA Visa since I have their credit rebuilding card, I was instantly approved with a $6K limit, my max CL. I'm now at about $22K in credit lines and I keep my utilization at about 10% or less so I'm pretty well set for a long time


Our Take

Chase Freedom UnlimitedSM offers great cash back rewards with no annual fee.

What to Like

With Chase Freedom UnlimitedSM, cardholders can earn unlimited 1.5% cash back on every single purchase, which is pretty cool. If you spend $500 on purchases in the first 3 months, you can also earn an additional $150 bonus. The rewards never expire as long as your account is open, there’s no annual fee and there’s also a 0% intro APR for 15 months on both purchases and balance transfers.

Look Out For

This card includes a 3% foreign transaction fee. Chase Freedom UnlimitedSM also doesn’t have 5% cash back in rotating categories, which is a feature of the standard Chase Freedom card.
